With the unofficial kick off to fall comes so many great things:
Pumpkin Madness – Did you hear the PSL is back!?
and the best part…. Fall Racing Season! We don’t have too many summer races in Florida because it is just far too hot to endure any kind of speedy mileage. However, come fall, lots of races start popping up! The only race that I am directly focused on right now is Chicago – which is now only 31 days away! After I run Chicago (and recover from Chicago!), I plan to get in a few half marathons before the year is over. Races I have coming up this fall are:
I know there are more races that will pop up around the holidays, but for now, I am definitely committed to these three! I have done them all in the past and have been very impressed by each one! Then once the new year comes around, I have quite a few half marathons lined up, and one in particular that I am extremely excited about….
I was asked by Zooma to be an ambassador for their newest race – Zooma Florida! (Full Disclosure: I am not being paid for the event, but I did receive a complimentary race entry.) The race is being hosted at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island, and I can not wait! I have never actually been to Amelia Island, so this sounds like the perfect opportunity to explore – running 13.1 miles seems like quite the tour! I tend to stick to local (ish) races that I have done time, and time again, but this will be a new course for me (and everyone else). I am really looking forward to participating in the weekend’s events. They have quite a few fun things on tap for all of the runners!
Besides, a race in Florida in January – the temperatures should be perfect! Maybe even a little bit cold for the duration of the race. I’ll just put those vibes out there now Look out on other runners’ blogs for the Zooma badge! I have one that signifies that I am an ambassador (check it out on my sidebar!), and they have ones for everyone participating as well! This makes it even easier to connect with other participants!
